Venue

Discover the city
Perched between the ocean and the mountain, with a national park as its heart, there is nowhere like Cape Town. The “Mother City” is the oldest city in South Africa and has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years.
The venue: CTICC
A multi-purpose conference and exhibition centre in the hub of Cape Town’s business and entertainment centre, the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) combines the impassioned dedication of its personnel with an extensive range of premium venues, services and facilities.
How to arrive
Cape Town International Airport is the only airport in Cape Town, which operates both domestic and international flights, and is likely to be your point of arrival into the city.
Getting around the city
Getting around Cape Town is very easy thanks a large variety of options: Uber, Bolt (Taxify), metered taxis, MyCiTi bus, car hire and/or walking.
